Ministik Berg (A89A to A88+)
September 13, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm MDT
We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 status and will gradually restart our hikes, with some obvious protocol changes listed at the bottom.
The hike is through the Ministik Bird Sanctuary and a bit beyond, much of which is the ‘Ball Berg’ section recently donated to the Nature Conservancy of Canada by the Ball family. This is of course a good chance to see birds, including waterfowl, as well as beaver. A small camera with a zoom lens or lightweight binoculars would be handy. The hike will leave from the trail head on “A89A”Range Road 210 (1 km of Hwy 14) at about 9:45 a.m. Due to beaver activity at the Triple B Ponds end, the hike leaving from A89A rather than A88. Then at A88 we’ll to a short jaunt down Twp Rd 510 to the UofA entrance & go on to Williams Lake for lunch. The pictures from Pictures from September 30th, 2018.
